This post is long overdue and I have been really nervous to post about it. This past month or so, I have been in a slump and had zero inspiration. When I first started Glitz and Glitter, I was blogging for me and then it became something bigger than I ever expected. I started thinking of the numbers, looking at the stats, and being disappointed when I didn’t get as many views as I had expected. Instagram became harder and harder to get interaction on and it was (still is) so disappointing to go on Instagram and see an account where there would be blank white photo slots that had more likes than photos I took time to work on. Other influencers I follow also took time for their photos and they suffered too. It became a disappointment to even open the app.
I let the numbers get to me instead of blogging for fun and I needed a break. In honesty, the numbers still bother me and they probably will until I no longer allow them to. I forget that I have people who follow Glitz and Glitter and interact with me and I love them. I keep thinking of numbers, how to get more views, more likes, etc. It kills the happiness I once had about blogging and I am trying to change that. So for now, Glitz and Glitter is going to be fun, or how I see fun. The posts are going to be things that I want to post and if they don’t get a lot of views, okay. It won’t ruin my life and I won’t let it ruin my day.
I needed time to get into a better mindset or even admit that I needed a break from it. Trying to stay on a one-post-a-week schedule wasn’t working and I was forcing it. It became monotonous. Starting in this season of life and of change, I’m shaking it up. The posts will be up when they go up (probably one every 2 weeks-ish), I’ll still be active on all of my social medias, and I’m still here, but Glitz and Glitter is going under some planning!
I hope you will stay with me on this journey and talk to me on social media! I truly see you guys as my friends, so contact me! Tweet me, send me funny stuff- it makes my day!
Until the next post, babes…
